At the Plantronics Distribution Roundtable in February, ScanSource Communications Europe, a
leading value-added distributor of voice, data, security and video communications solutions, was
named the Distributor of the Year for Largest Growth in 2011.

The roundtable, which took place in the new Plantronics offices in Cologne, proved a great
opportunity to showcase the ‘Smarter Office’ concept, where all workers use UC-headsets to
make telephone calls. These can be connected to their laptops, meaning they are not tied to one
workstation and can remain effective everywhere – even on the roof terrace in summer.

“We would like to thank all of our partners who trusted us with their Plantronics business in 2011
and helped us to be recognised in this way,” said Marianne Nickenig, Managing Director,
ScanSource Communications Europe. “Accessories such as headsets are a key complement to
our base voice offer. They provide our customers’ customers with smarter solutions for mobile
working and help our reseller partners to increase margins and provide full solutions. We’re also
proud to say we are actively contributing to the Plantronics Smart Working Initiative.”

“ScanSource’s performance over the past year has been really impressive and we’re very
pleased to give them this award,” said Axel Hellpap, Sales Manager Distribution, Plantronics
DACH. “Our aim is to allow users to focus on the conversation and by utilising their UC expertise
and great product knowledge to advise resellers on which devices best meet the demands of
every individual project, ScanSource is making it easy for us to meet that goal.”
